Card to improve Windows Aero score

Question asked by dman2015 on Aug 19, 2015

I run Windows 7 64-bit but need a graphics card that will improve my Windows Aero score.


m/b is Aus Z87-A, with Intel i7 4770, 32GB RAM


With the on-board Intel HD 4600 graphics, the score is 6.7 for Windows Aero. I need to improve that.


I need a card that's fast on processing, especially the Aero stuff.


I had an ATI Radeon 6450, but the Windows Aero score with that card in was much lower.


What card (available in the UK) can I get that will definitely improve this score, preferably under £150 GBP.


If possible, I'd also like one that does not consume too much power, so I can avoid having to upgrade my PSU (current one is 650w).


I'm having a problem with Steinberg Cubase 8 Pro (they use Aero and the GPU to offload processing in version 8).


Any help appreciated. Thanks
